At this year's KI we are running an AI competition to provide an opportunity to test AI concepts in an application, namely a cooperative platform game. Everyone is welcome to submit, we especially encurage submissions from students and student groups.
Participants are asked to provide an AI that controls multiple agents in a cooperative platformer game called ZooOperation. The different agents in the game have unique abilities with which they are able to help each other finish the level. Please find a trailer of the gameplay below.
In addition to the competition, we are running a workshop where participants have the opportunity to present their solutions and discuss them with the KI community.The winners of the competition will be announced at the workshop.
The main challenges the controllers face are:
- Path planning
- Puzzle solving
